Infant Massage Classes at The Sanctuary for Yoga
Pat Angermaier, a certified instructor in infant massage, is hosting a series of classes designed to help new parents master the techniques of infant massage at The Sanctuary for Yoga, in Medford. Couples and individuals with babies between birth and crawling stages are welcome to join the four-week session, which meets from noon to 1 p.m., Wednesdays, from January 8 to 29.
Classes cover how to improve communication with the baby, heightening the parents’ ability to understand their baby’s unique needs. Infant massage also helps babies to release stress that builds daily from new experiences so that they can sleep better. To share this joyful and wonderful healing art with their babies is one of the greatest gifts parents can share. Infant massage is deeply relaxing and soothing. Nurturing touch deepens the parent-baby bond, enhancing intimacy, empathy and the parents’ ability to nurture.
It is recommended that participants bring a blanket to class and obtain the book Infant Massage: A Handbook for Loving Parents by Vimala McClure.
Cost: $75. Location: 43 S. Main St., Medford. For preregistration (required) and more information, call 609-953- 7800 or visit TheSanctuaryForYoga.com.
